Fears of surveillance across borders are driving nations to cut off their countries with Berlin Walls for data, threatening to break apart the World Wide Web. While many have critiqued the laws governing surveillance of Americans by the United States, little attention has been paid to the laws governing surveillance by the United States abroad. How will surveillance affect the Internet enterprises of China and the United States? How does mass surveillance undermine the promise of the Electronic Silk Road?

Anupam Chander is Director of the California International Law Center and Professor of Law at UC Davis. His research focuses on the regulation of globalization and digitization. His new book, The Electronic Silk Road: How the Web Binds the World Together in Commerce, was published in June 2013 by Yale University Press.

He has been a visiting professor at Yale Law School, the University of Chicago Law School, Stanford Law School, and Cornell Law School. He has published widely in the nation’s leading law journals, including the Yale Law Journal, the NYU Law Journal, the University of Chicago Law ReviewTexas Law Review, and the California Law Review. A graduate of Harvard College and Yale Law School, he clerked for Chief Judge Jon O. Newman of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals and Judge William A. Norris of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. He practiced law in New York and Hong Kong with Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen & Hamilton. He is the recipient of two Google Research Awards.
